Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs
Saturdays, April 1 and 22
How do we identify “the enemy”? How do we keep our country safe without compromising civil liberties? Based on our upcoming exhibition Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs: Fear and Freedom in America, this two-part seminar examines terror and espionage in America from the Revolutionary War through the War on Terrorism. Both sessions include hands-on activities and free resource materials.
The first session focuses on events in Chicago history that made a national impact. Activities include a presentation by Peter T. Alter, CHM historian and director of the Studs Terkel Center for Oral History, and gallery time in Chicago: Crossroads of America and Facing Freedom in America.
During the second session, investigate important issues during gallery activities in Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs and small group work utilizing the accompanying teacher guide.
Recommended for teachers of grades 7 to 12. Each session is worth 3 PD hours. While sessions can stand alone, we strongly encourage participants to attend both.
Cost: $25 per session, $40 for both
